"The team at Irwin Mitchell has a ‘pre-eminent reputation’ for travel personal injury work"

Legal 500 (2016)

Habtoor Grand Beach Resort & Spa

Irwin Mitchell’s International Personal Injury team has been approached to act on behalf on a Scottish holidaymaker and her family after she became ill whilst suffering at the Habtoor Grand Beach Resort and Spa in Jumeirah Beach, Dubai.

The group visited the resort in October 2015 and the Scottish woman had to be admitted to hospital, reporting to us that she was later diagnosed with Legionnaire’s disease when she returned home. The woman continues to struggle with ongoing symptoms including fatigue and shortness of breath.

Despite some positive reviews, guests have complained that the rooms at the hotel had a damp smell. The family also suggested that the air conditioning unit in the room looked old and dated.

Our expert solicitors have first-hand experience in helping those who are unfortunate enough to contract Legionnaire’s disease and a number of other holiday illnesses. We will be investigating the cause of the illness on behalf of the family, helping them get the answers and compensation they need.

If you have also travelled to the Habtoor Grand Beach Resort and Spa in Jumeriah Beach, Dubai, and subsequently experienced symptoms of illness, we would like to hear from you.

"We were very happy with the outcome of our case, especially as we were initially offered nothing from the Tour Operator. Irwin Mitchell were very professional throughout and we are very happy with the outcome."
